From a recent comic I painted! 8D I never figured out what to call this piece? AAAAAA I need to update my folders here on DA so BOATS BOATS BOATS XDDDDDD I guess the fun thing about comics is they make me draw things I wouldn't bother with normally, but this image is kind of cool! Limited color pallet and old boats. I have never done nautical images or historic boats at all before. 

The comic is Artificer, and it is available to read over on Filthy Figments! FF is a fun naughty comics site focused on femme gaze material <3

Great work!! And the comics site is nice too, although I'm a bit of a prude to be honest.

Holy crap, wow! What fantastic world building! Those boats are so wonderfully drawn - I dunno where your patience comes from but it really paid off!

There's a really appropriate amount of detail both being revealed  and somewhat concealed- the boat structures seem historically accurate and your color helps gives that clarity. If I had any real criticism ( not that I see anything negative ) I do feel like the flying seagull in the left, middle side of the picture frame, that's directly adjescent to the sitting birds, feels somewhat out of place- the perspective is correct, but it seems unclear to me where it is in relation to the ground, allthough I'm not an expert on these sorts of things. Overally, I think you have a really nice setting here and I'm definitely sorting that into my favorites!

This is a amazing colour scheme for boats. It kind of represents the woodyness of them. And I love your perspectiv and layering. So much details to find even in the backround of the backround

oh man those are some amazing boats +o+ if you don't mind me asking, where/how do you find refs for stuff like this? I have an upcoming project that involves boats but every time I've tried to find reference I have no idea what I'm looking at +m+

You should stop drawing wolves and just draw boats from now on.
